This fairy tale started with a few old trees in my garden.
The trees I’d grown up with had grown up with my grandparents when they were young. Family and trees had lived their lives side by side for many years. When such family trees becomes old, they can turn to trolls instead of old logs.
And this is exactly what happened right outside my house, in my garden! The garden lays by the fjord and from there it grew to a fjordtroll kingdom. Family and trolls lived right next to one another for many years without knowing it. Well, - like many other truths, this one isn’t entirely correct either. As long someone in the family believed in fairy tales, quite a lot of things happened. There occurred wonders, curses, frights and even troll-children! This happened right outside our door and close to a completely normal family. To understand what happened, you’ll have to get to know Fred. For this fairy tale begins with the curious Fred who dares to leave the fjordtroll kingdom. Outside he meets a couple of children form the human kingdom.
Fred goes on adventures in Åsane and all the way to the other side of the city.
For a troll who’s never been outside the fjordtroll kingdom with his dad and brother, this is all really scary. How Fred ends up as a hero and manages to break an old curse, you can read about in this little book.
The fairy tale is fitting for children of every age.
The fairy tale provides information on the area in a fun way. Here you’ll get to know about your environments, simply by following Fred’s footsteps. There is also an Norwegian version provided for locals in Norway. This is the English version provided for travellers from outside of Norway. This issue is one that the tourism industry will find to be not only useful, but also enjoyable.
